Organizations are making efforts towards a fair and candidate-friendly interview process that involves consistent structured interviews across job types to reduce bias. The highest-rated CandE Winners in Talent Board's benchmark research conducted structured interviews more frequently and achieved higher positive candidate ratings and perceived fairness. Providing candidates with information on their job fit and candidacy status at the end of the interview day resulted in a 71% increase in their willingness to refer others.

Giving feedback to candidates pays off significantly for employers, as explored in this episode.
